Trivia

They talk about "Silent Night" as being a biological agent. It is a binary chemical agent that takes two inert items and converts them into a lethal weapon. Scientists that work on raising viruses and other live pathogens don't also work on chemical agents. They are two different things. However, this is a fictional story, and bears no resemblance to real-life whatsoever. See more »

Goofs

When Xander parachutes into the compound, it appears he pulls his silver handle on the left ribcage, on his parachute to jettison the canopy. In reality, the silver handle is the reserve parachute deployment handle. In real life he would have pulled the cutaway handle on his right ribcage, which is the cutaway handle. Pulling the reserve handle without pulling the cutaway handle will result in a 2-canopy out situation, which would be potentially dangerous. See more »

Quotes

Alternate Versions

The Region 1 DVD contains 11 deleted/extended scenes. They are as follows:
  • Gibbons observing as two other NSA agents argue against having an average citizen as a secret agent, then give Gibbons the green light.
  • Xander rides in the economy class of an airplane and explains his mission to a teenage boy, telling him that it's all part of a first person shooter video game.
  • Extended version of Xander's arrival in Prague, where the Ivans stand guard while Xander tries to take a nap.
  • Additional footage before Xander enters the techno dance club.
  • The Ivans discovering the blood splatter dart after Xander shoots the police officer.
  • Extended party scene in the castle, containing a more explicit version of the pole dance scene (which was later trimmed down for a PG13 rating).
  • R-Rated version of Yorgi receiving a phone call from someone with information on Xander Cage. It features three nude girls on a bed behind him (the R1 DVD has it blurred out).
  • Additional dialogue after Xander's "Nothing like Fresh Powder" line between Xander and Gibbons regarding Xander disobeying orders.
  • Extended version of the Prague police raid on Yorgi's castle.
  • Additional dialogue between Xander and Yelena on Bora Bora, where Xander asks Yelena how long she can hold her breath.

Turn off your brain and enjoy the ride...
16 August 2002 | by robjan1See all my reviews

I would not dare to insult anyone's intelligence. With that said let me add, this movie will not insult yours, if you see it with the right attitude. Adrenaline pump set for full tilt boogie. This is not an intellectual movie, it is not a love story, and it certainly is not Rambo. What it is, is a series of action shorts connected by a common thread that is very much in vogue. Good guys vs. bad guys/terrorists and in so doing, overcome insurmountable odds to, 1. Do the " right thing " 2. Save the day, 3.Have a hell of a time doing it and 4. GET THE GIRL! If, you expect anymore than that, you will be disappointed. So, turn off you brain and enjoy the ride. If you enjoy extreme sports, action genre movies and bad guys with eastern european accents, sign up get ready to party. This is your movie! Oh, btw. Make sure you see this movie in a theatre that has GREAT sound. You will be rewarded.
